I made these cute cookies for 4th of July this year :)
I was inspired by these!
I used Martha Stewart's Sugar Cookie Recipe
and Royal Icing (a bag of powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons meringue powder, and 7 tablespoons water) in plain, pink, and green
To make the watermelon shape I used a circle cutter and then ran a knife across the center to cut the circle in half
I probably spent about 6 hours on these cookies from making the dough, chilling the dough, rolling, cutting, baking the cookies, and then decorating them (that took about 2 hours). I made the cookies 6 days in advance and kept them in ziplock bags in the freezer. I took them out of the freezer on July 4th and decorated them. They tasted yummy
